I get the same, checking for update failed.

Also can't find anything in the release info, even 3.3 Beta hasn't got a release date.

anyone who is thinking of getting it, do, because it's virtually similar, even better to Microsoft's Office, and it's FREE.
#11
Thanks for that I'd no idea you could get this for free!!

3.3 is a dev/beta version, and as such may not be fully "de-bugged" yet

So....

you are NOT necessarily the lucky one...
#13
this is open source software (for the people by the people ) you only pay if its for corporate use,,, search for open source software there's thousands of progies... most of it though is for a Linux based OS :)
#14
Brilliant that it's free. But not better than MS Office.
#15
If you want a good word-processing application, check out Lyx.

No, it's not. Can't argue with free productivity software though!
#17
It holds its own against MS Office, I'd urge anyone to download this who have not got a copy of MS Office on their PC.
#18
This might be a silly question but can i create a file in MS Word then open it in Open Office?

As an ICT Coordinator in a secondary school I can assure everyone that Open Office is a top quality product. In my school we have Microsoft Office 97 but I prefer using OIpen Office in my teaching. It does all that is required (and more) in schools and only lacks the most esoteric extras in MS Office.

What is more, its native file format is completely open source - several countries, including France do not allow government departments to use Microsoft file formats becuase they are proprietary and this technically means that Microsoft has ownership of the underlying file structure of documents. Not acceptable for government documents.

Open Office can open and save to Microsoft Office file formats if you wish, including the latest xml formats introduced with MS Office 2007 (eg. docx, xlsx etc.).

The UK government, through its educational technology arm BECTA, advised schools not to adopt MS Office 2007 and recommended that they consider Open Office. They also exerted pressure on Microsoft to enable the opening and saving of Open Office file formats in MS Office - which it has now done if you update to the very latest version of MS Office (free update online).

I am a big fan of the OpenOffice Suite, with one notable exception ... OpenOfficeDraw. I have used and continue to use a lot of graphics programs and I confess that the Draw program just jars with me; it isn't intuitive and doesn't have many features. However, other open source software, such as GIMP, is a brilliant program to draw in and meets many of my needs.

OpenOffice Suite appears to be working very smoothly with Windows 7 too (they are both behaving themselves!) :thumbsup:

Nice that it's free and I do use it but it's as horribly bloated as MS Office. Is there a nice, free, lean, fast to start alternative ?

[url]www.abiword.com[/url] is a lightweight and free (open source too) word processor :thumbsup:

SoftMaker is a lighter version than OpenOffice. It also has equivalents of Word, Excel and Powerpoint - and it's free!...

Abiword is good, but it is only a limited form of Word.

Cheers for that, I'll give it a go.
